SRU JUSTIFICATION
================

Hotkeys do not work because thinkpad_acpi module does not load.

The newer V series bios reports product version as 'Lenovo' instead of 'ThinkPad'. Recoginze this new string so that the module can load.

TEST
====
This fix was tested by James Ferguson, Dennis Chua and Ike Pan and reported to work.
